Mushroom soup recipe – Simple, easy, delicious and healthy mushroom soup recipe with step by step photos. I made this few months ago for a weekend brunch along with garlic cheese toast and chilli garlic eggs. I made this from a recipe column of a magazine and it turned out very good. Surprisingly, I have few mushroom recipes in the drafts for a long time, so sharing them.
Mildly flavored with garlic and butter, this mushroom soup tastes very delicious without the use of cream.
